It’s lovely to welcome Kathryn Jane today, with a fun and easy recipe for ice-box cookies. (The British translation of “fridge biscuits” doesn’t have quite the same ring to it!)
Kathryn Jane is one of the contributors to our Bake, Love, Write dessert recipe book, where you can find lots of other delicious recipes.
Thanks for coming along today, Kathryn!
My favorite holiday recipe is my Mom’s icebox cookies, because you can make them so different! The basic recipe never changes, but you can add anything from chocolate chips, nuts and mini-marshmallows, to cocoa or food coloring. I like making several batches and add everything but the kitchen sink! The most fun, are the checker-boards or stripe you can create by using food coloring in portions of the dough.
1 c Butter
1 c White sugar
1 c Brown sugar
1 t Vanilla
3 1/2 c Flour
1 t Baking Soda
1/8 t Salt
Add sugar until all is fluffy.
Add well beaten eggs and vanilla and beat well
Mix and sift flour, baking soda and salt and add slowly to wet mixture
Now add the fun stuff. Chocolate chips, raisins, coconut, food coloring or whatever you like
Roll and refrigerate (or freeze if not planning to bake them for several days)
Slice and cook on greased cookie sheets at 400 for 10-12 minutes.

She’s desperate to stop a killer….
Rachel Meyers has been on the run long enough—hiding from more than just death. But now the murders happening around her are forcing her to take a stand and the only person she can trust to help is the man she ran away from. Her husband.
He’s desperate to have his wife back….
Quinn Meyers has spent two years searching for Rachel. Now she’s back, scared and asking for help. But Quinn wants answers. Helping her is a given, he won’t say no, but he also won’t let her go again. Not without a fight.
Quinn’s body still aches for Rachel, even though he’s guarded his heart since the day she left. Her continued secrecy is tearing apart any hope of saving their marriage. But more than love is at stake if Quinn and Rachel can’t find the killer.

Thanks so much for coming, Kathryn. I loved the idea of forming the biscuit (cookie) dough in a roll and then just slicing it. What a simple yet delicious recipe! And the blurb for VOICES sounds really gripping. Best of luck with your new release!
